This morning I received an email from Ann, an art teacher from Mississippi. She sent me these photos of her 7th grade students with their “Megan Coyle collages.” She told me that she created a lesson plan about my work, showed her students images of my collages, and then had them make their own collages on recycled Masonite boards leftover from the school’s theatre department.
I love it when teachers send images of their student collage art. It’s great seeing what such young artists are able to accomplish with bits and pieces of paper. And it was great seeing another batch of wonderful collages where students embraced the medium – some working mainly with textured magazine strips, some working with solid colors, while others used a variety of both solid and textured. Again, it was fun getting a chance to see these.
